It’s been a while since we collectively grew tired of the FILA Disruptor stompers, and since then, the brand has been relatively quiet. At least, with what some online critics dubbed as ‘the most hated shoe of the year’, FILA stirred up a conversation, though. Before then, the once-prolific sportswear brand had been flying under the radar, never really touching their competitors in adidas and Nike.
That is, until now. Following its release with Heritage Floss, FILA Korea is continuing its series of collaborations with a project with South Korean label POST ARCHIVE FACTION (PAF).
Simply titled “FILA ARCHIVE by POST ARCHIVE FACTION,” the special range sees PAF rework iconic FILA items drawn from the brands’ extensive archive. The collection itself consists of jackets, hoodies, trousers, headwear and bags, and focuses on three striking tonal codes.
The down jackets are a standout, delivering a full shape and silhouette complete with subtle details like chest embroidery, functional zipper closure and collar. The zip design is also a motif on the collection’s matching technical trousers, which continue the singular and striking aesthetic of PAF.
FILA’s trademark “F” logo adorns the caps and jackets, marked in tonal embroidery, whilst the large “X” shaped sports bags come complete with matching webbing and dual straps with FILA and PAF branding.
Priced between £30 – £288 (US $40 and $385), the FILA ARCHIVE by POST ARCHIVE FACTION collection is set to be available in three drops (November 23, 29 and December 3) via FILA Korea and PAF’s websites.
